University Mace 

The University Mace, a symbol of 
leadership and authority, is a visual 
embodiment of tradition in academic 
circles. Presented during the insti- 
tution's 75th anniversary in 1987, the 
mace is displayed only at formal 
events attended by faculty and top 
administrators dressed in full 
academic regalia. The evolution of 
the University's name is depicted on 
silver disks on the mace's bronze 
head. 



University Banner 

The University banner is often used at 
formal events, proudly displaying our 
University seal. The seal, which was intro- 
duced in 2003, incorporates symbols that 
are unique to The University of Memphis. 
The Mace is the center, surrounded by the 
traditional laurel wreath, and anchored by 
the book of knowledge bearing our found- 
ing date of 1912. The University's position- 
ing line, "Dreamers, Thinkers. Doers.", 
appears in Latin at the bottom portion of 
the seal. Translated the line means: To 
dream. To think. To do. 



Presidential Medallion 

The Presidential Medallion sig- 
nifies position, authority and trust 
and is worn by the President during 
official academic functions at the 
University. Commissioned by a group 
of distinguished alumni and friends 
and presented to the University in 
1974, the Presidential Medallion 
combines institutional symbols with 
chain links honoring all presidents of 
the Universitv.

HISTORICAL HERITAGE 

For almost a century, the University of Memphis has been a catalyst for progress in the city of Memphis, the state of Tennessee and the 
surrounding Mid-South region. As a doctoral degree-granting metropolitan research university, we are committed to excellence at all levels: 
undergraduate, graduate and professional. 

The University of Memphis' roots date back to 1912 when it began as West Tennessee State Normal School and its main purpose was to educate 
public school teachers. While our name has changed several times throughout the years, the University has continued to be guided by the principles 
of academic integrity, sound management and equal opportunity. 

The main campus lies in the heart of a widespread metropolis and combines the convenience of a large city with the atmosphere of a residential 
neighborhood. Additionally, the University consists of several satellite campuses, including Collierville. Dyersburg, Millington and Jackson. 

As the flagship of the Tennessee Board of Regents system, the University of Memphis awards more than 3.000 degrees annually. Divisions of 
study include the College of Arts and Sciences, Fogelman College of Business and Economics, the College of Communication and Fine Arts, the College 
of Education, Herff College of Engineering, Loewenberg School of Nursing, University College, Graduate School, Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law 
and the School of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. 

The University offers 15 bachelor's degrees in more than 50 majors and 70 concentrations, master's degrees in over 45 subjects, doctoral degrees 
in 21 disciplines, a specialist's degree in education, the Juris Doctor and an ever-expanding online degree program. Reflecting on its commitment to 
the highest levels of excellence in teaching and national prominence in research, the University of Memphis has five Centers of Excellence and 25 
Chairs of Excellence. Its full-time faculty number over 850. 

Our wireless campus educates more than 20,000 students each year, and our faculty have won national awards ranging from Emmys and Grainim s 
to the prestigious Peabody Award. 

Recent additions to the campus landscape include the FedEx Institute of Technology, the Kemmons Wilson School of Hospitality and Resort 
Management, the John Wilder Student Services Tower and the Michael D. Rose Theatre Lecture Hall. In 2009, we will relocate the Cecil C. Humphreys 
School of Law to the historic U.S. Customs House and Post Office in downtown Memphis, a significant achievement for both the city and the I niversity. 

While instruction, service and research are our primary emphases, the University also commits its resources to the social, cultural and economic 
welfare of the region through partnerships with many public and private organizations. 

As we move toward our centennial anniversary in 2012, the University of Memphis is poised to enhance its national and international reputation 
as one of America's great metropolitan research universities.

ACADEMIC DRESS 

The following information is to help our visitors identify the costumes seen in the commencement procession: 

Academic dress evolved from religious habit worn by faculty in the ancient universities who were members of religious orders. 
For centuries these gowns distinguished students from their fellow citizens; sometimes this distinction in dress symbolized unfortunate 
controversies between "town and gown." The European habit of using academic robes came to this country in the eighteenth century 
with the founding of what is now Columbia University. In 1895, American universities and colleges standardized their styles of academic 
costumes, and this system, with occasional modifications, is still in force. Today, the various colors, trimmings, and patterns of gown, 
hood, and cap are all traditional and symbolize both the degree and field of learning. 

GOWNS: American academic gowns are usually of black material, and their pattern varies with the degree held. The bachelor 
gowns are relatively simple in design with a closed front and long, pointed, open sleeves. Master's gowns have an open front with 
long, closed sleeves, the arms extending through a slit at the elbow, giving the appearance of short sleeves. Doctoral gowns are 
the most elaborate with velvet panels down the open front and three velvet bars on the bell-shaped sleeves. 

HOODS: The hoods, differing in length for the three degrees (bachelor's, masters, and doctors), are lined with the colors of the 
institution that granted the degree. Hoods are also trimmed with the color that heralds the major field of learning. 

CAPS: A square mortarboard is the approved headgear. The tassel, fastened to the middle point of the top of the cap, is black or 
the color appropriate to the subject; it may be gold if the holder has a doctor's degree. The University of Memphis has adopted 
the practice of having candidates for the bachelor degree wear the tassels on the right front side before degrees are conferred and 
shift them to the left at the moment when the degrees are awarded to them. 

In the last few years, many universities have decided to return to a distinctive gown design. For instance, Columbia's is now slate 
gray, Rochester's a dandelion yellow, Northwestern's is purple. The doctoral gown, with facing of black velvet, now has sleeve 
bands in the color of the wearer's discipline. Some have replaced the mortarboard with a soft velvet tarn with a gold tassel. 

Following is a list of the hood and tassel colors that represent several categories of learning: 

Arts. Letters. Humanities White Health Administration Green 

Audiology Forest Green Journalism Crimson 

Speech Pathology Royal Blue Law Purple 

City & Regional Planning Scarlet Red Music Pink 

Commerce, Accountancy, Business Sapphire Blue Nursing Apricot 

Communication Arts Silver Gray Philosophy White 

Economics Copper Physical Education Light Blue 

Education Light Blue Public Administration Peacock Blue 

Engineering Orange Science Golden Yellow 

I ine \rt- Brown Social Work Citron 

All hoods are edged with the above colors. These same colors may be used for the facing and sleeve bars of doctoral gowns and 
tassel.- on bachelors' and masters* caps. 

The lining of the hood indicates the university granting the degree — for The University of Memphis, blue and gray. Among other 
institutional colors represented at this commencement are ihose lor Arkansas, red and white; Chicago, maroon; Columbia, light blue 
and white chevron: Duke, royal blue with white chevron; Emory, navy blue with gold chevron; Harvard, crimson; Illinois, navy blue 
with two orange chevrons; University of Iowa, old gold; Kansas, navy blue with cardinal chevron; Northwestern, purple with gold 
chevrons: Ohio State, scarlet with silver gray chevron; Rice, silver above blue; Texas, white above orange; Vanderbilt, black and gold, 
W isconsin, bright red: Yale, royal blue. 



UNDERGRADUATE 
CANDIDATES FOR DEGREES 

GRADUATION WITH DISTINCTION 

Based on a grading system of "A"" as 4.0, three 
designations of graduation honors are recognized.* 

Summa Cum Laude 3.80 - 4.00 Gold Cord 

Magna Cum Laude 3.50 - 3.79 Crimson Cord 

Cum Laude 3.25 - 3.49 White Cord 

GRADUATION WITH HONORS 

Students may earn Honors distinction by meeting requirements of the campus-wide University Honors 
Program and/or fulfilling requirements for departmental honors programs. These requirements involve 
a combination of special honors coursework, independent study, and usually an honors thesis or 
project. Students who successfully complete University Honors Program requirements are awarded 
their degrees with honors (e.g., University Honors or University Honors with Thesis). Students 
completing departmental honors programs are awarded their degree with honors in their area ot 
concentration (e.g., With Honors in English). 



: Note: The commencement program is a roster of candidates, not an official list of graduates. 
Appropriate degrees and honors irill be awarded to candidates who successfully complete all 
requirements by established deadlines. The posting of the earned degree on the official 
uinversity transcript is the institution's affirmation of possession of the degree. 

Because of time limitations imposed in preparing this program for commencement, listing for 
graduation with distinction was based on a minimum offorty-tivo (42) semester hours 
at the University of Memphis and the grade point average as of the term prior to the 
final semester.

Dean Richard It Ranta, Ph.D. 

The College of Communication and Fine Arts is ultimately centered on \ isual and audible symbols whose 
rational and emotional values it is the mission of the College to create and explore. In the belief that perception is 
largely shaped by experience, the College of Communication and Fine Arts offers a range of symbolically rendered 
experiences, both individual and collective, in the hope of broadening and sensitizing the perceptions of it- 
students. 

Through its various professional courses of study, it prepares students to work toward careers in die fine or 
applied arts, communication, or the performing arts, whether as practitioners, teachers, artists, or consultants. The 
College offers three degrees by which to accomplish its purposes:

THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 

Dean Henry A. Kurtz. Ph.D. 

The aims and purposes of The College of Arts and Sciences are, summarized in these words that serve as 
part of our official statement in the catalog issue of the University Bulletin: "The program of liberal studies 
aims (1) to provide students with a store of factual knowledge; (2) to introduce them to varying sets of 
principles; (3) to stimulate them to think about and to evaluate these facts and principles; and (4) to encourage 
them to order their own affairs and those of society with the talent, insight, and discrimination which they 
develop." We have been privileged to pursue these aims with the following students who are candidates for the 
five degrees which we offer:

THE FOGELMAN COLLEGE OF BUSINESS AND ECONOMICS 

Dean Rajii Groier. Ph.D. 

The Fogelman College of Business and Economics oilers a comprehensive undergraduate degree, the 
Bachelor of Business Administration degree. The goal of the undergraduate program of the Fogelman College 
of Business and Economics is to provide the basic education needed to prepare a person to enter the field of 
business and to move rapidly from an entry level position into a managerial position. 

Vie believe the curriculum that best accomplishes this goal consists of four components. First, a broad 
foundation of course work is provided in the liberal arts and sciences. At least 40 percent of the work taken by 
each student in the Fogelman College of Business and Economics is in the humanities, the social sciences, the 
natural and physical sciences, communications, and mathematics. 

Second, the curriculum includes a significant amount of study of the economic and legal environment of 
business and introduces each of the major functional Fields of business-management information systems. 
accounting, finance, management, and marketing. 

Third, the curriculum provides for a choice of a major by the student. The student is permitted to select a 
major from accounting: business economics, with a concentration in financial economics: finance with concentrations in business finance, 
real estate, and risk management and insurance: hospitality resort management: international business: management; management 
information systems: marketing management: sales: logistics supply chain management. 

Fourth, the Bachelor of Business Administration curriculum provides students with a number oi open electives. Through these 
electives, the student may select courses particularly suited to her or his own interests, thus providing an opportunity for the student to 
pursue in greater breadth and depth the study of business or related fields.

NATIONAL ANTHEM 



Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light 
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming, 
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight 
O'er the ramparts we watch'd were so gallantly streaming? 
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, 
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. 
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave 
O'er the land ol the free and the home of the brave? 



ALMA MATKR 



Stand firm, Alma Mater, 
Through all the years to come; 
In days of youth and beauty 
Thy halls have been our home. 
In time of preparation 
Great lessons didst thou teach 
Till now, Alma Mater, 
The stars we'll strive to reach. 



Lead on, Alma Mater. 
Guide them on their ways. 
Give light and truth unto them 
For all their coming Days, 
To Thee we'll give all honor, 
Our hopes A-bide In Thee. 
For Thou Alma Mater 
Hast made us ever Free.
